Friday Fictioneers: 3 January 2014

A note from Rochelle: To start off the year with a bit of whimsy, I’m posting my daughter-in-law’s picture of their tree-climbing dog. She assures me that this is untouched and not photo-shopped. Yep, that’s my granddaughter watching.

Long John’s Dare

“You see who’s coming up the trail.” meowed Sabre Eyes.

“I can certainly see farther if I’m up in that tree.” barked Long John.

“Problem is, dogs can’t climb trees!”

If there is anything that can make Long John see red, it is the phrase that begins: “dogs can’t…”. 

He studied the tree, observed his feline friend Brownie,  then began to try. It took him two weeks but there he was…he’d found his trail up the tree! 

“Humph!” said Long John to himself…”dogs can’t climb trees…ah yeah!”

Then he discovered what every cat knows…it’s getting down a tree that’s tricky…
